Submit Your Questions for Jaime De La Vega

Our question and answer session with LAPD Sgt. David Krumer went so well, that we decided to do it again.  This time, incoming LADOT General Manager Jaime De La Vega has agreed to answer ten questions (the same number Krumer answered) submitted by Streetsblog readers.

As with Krumer, I’d ask everyone to remain somewhat respectful in their questions.  I’m not saying don’t ask tough questions, but let’s remember that De La Vega has volunteered to do this even though the Streetsblog audience has already shown themselves to be somewhat sceptical that he can reform the LADOT.

Questions should be in by Friday.  If there are more than ten, I’ll pick the “ten best” questions and send them to LADOT on Monday.
